12 Strange Asian Beverages

Sodas and other beverages made for the Asian market can often seem strange to us in the Western world. I guess due to different dieting habit and culture, whatever may seem like an odd flavor to us is often very popular there.

From “Wasabi drink” to “cheese drink“, here are some strange Asian beverages you may not have heard of. You might think how the hell those terrifying drink has been made in market… However, look on the bright side, though: they may not be good to drink, but you can’t say they’re not good for a laugh.
